June 1, 1932 — February 19, 2021

Yardley, PA

Donald Edward Brodie, M.D, died on Friday, February 19, 2021 at Jefferson Bucks Hospital, Langhorne, PA.  Born in Wilmington, DE, Dr. Brodie lived in Levittown, PA prior to moving to Yardley over 50 years ago.

Dr. Brodie was a proud Veteran of both the Air Force and the Army, attaining the rank of Colonel.  Prior to his retirement, he served as a medical doctor for the Army for many years.

An accomplished cellist, he was constantly playing music whenever he could. For decades he played in the Trenton Symphony Orchestra and was a member of the American Federation of Musicians. He was also a member of the adult chamber players at the Settlement Music School in Willow Grove, in which he played the cello.

Son of the late William and Gertrude (Landers) Brodie, he is survived by his loving wife Anita M. (Blanchet) Brodie, a son and daughter-in-law Frederick A. Brodie and Donna Van Alst of Slingerlands, NY, a daughter Diana J. Brodie of San Francisco, CA, two grandchildren Rafael and Jonas Brodie, a great granddaughter Madelyn Elyse Sobieski, and several nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.

There will be a graveside service with military honors on Thursday, April 1, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. at Ft. Indiantown Gap National Cemetery, 60 Indiantown Gap Rd., Annville, PA. A gathering to celebrate Dr. Brodie’s life will be held at a later date.

Dr. Brodie had the gift of being able to relate on a personal level to people of all races, backgrounds, and circumstances. He will be missed by his many friends from music, medicine, and the Armed Forces. Dr. Brodie’s family will miss him terribly.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions, in Dr. Brodie’s name, be made to the Wounded Warrior Project (www.woundedwarriorproject.com) or to Black Lives Matter (www.blacklivesmatter.com).
